Here is the root ball tiki from Trader Vics Dallas I just came across. The first pic is Mr. Tiki in my trailer, the second is a pic of Mr. Tiki in the Trader Vics Dallas. The third is a piece of paper that was in the canoe that lead me to find out where all the Tiki stuff came from. Check out Ebay for more details. I will be posting pics of the certificates and other items from the Trader Vics Dallas. This is cool stuff that needs a good home check it out on ebay!

I don't think you are gonna get that e-bay price, honestly, not in this economy, and not for that Tiki. It is not a vintage Tiki from the 60s when the Dallas Trader Vic's was built, but an Asian-carved import from the 2000s. Some people don't mind that, as the recent Trader Vic's warehouse sales have shown, but a lot of people here are more into the vintage American style.

Also, I bet lotsa people here are interested in seeing the other goodies from there that you mentioned. Milky glass floats with good netting are rare for example. Depending on size, they can go up in price quite a bit.

WILSON!!

That's the tiki that greeted you when you opened the upside-down doors after walking down the long hallway. We were wondering whatever happened to him after the big liquidation. I'll alert the TX Tiki folks so we can help find him a good home.

As noted earlier, this guy isn't vintage...he's one of the mass produced tikis from Asiantique that ended up on every new TV invoice. First time I saw one was in Scottsdale before they dried up.

Still, he holds a lot of memories for those of us who frequented Dallas TV's and thats the important thing.

aaronc33: I sent you a PM. Although I personally don't have room for Wilson, I'll get the word to the other TX Tikiphiles.
